    Well i hit a curb and managed to bend about 1 foot in on the corner of my trip edge (where theres a backing plate) so now the plow scrapes on each side but the middle doesnt touch on level ground, i tore the trip edge off today and now trying to figure out how to straighten it out, any suggestion Thanks in advance

    Hi Without seeing it,it might be better to leave it on the plow and get a big A$$ chain and a ratchet load binder,Hook each end to both ends of the plow, use a torch heat up where its bent and try ratcheting it so it brings the ends in. I would say the plow should still be on the truck and be on the ground.If you try straightening it off the truck you might not be able to get it bolted back on the plow or attached due to possible stretching of the piece being straightened.Lets see some pics:)
